DC Comic Book "Fables" to Become a Movie

Posted: June 5th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
DC Comic Book "Fables" to Become a MovieSubmit Comment
Warner Bros has announced that it has hired Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) to direct its upcoming "Fables" fantasy film, which is written by Jeremy Slater ("Fantastic Four" reboot) and is based on a DC comic book series.

"Fables," created in 2002 by Bill Willingham, centers on fairy-tale characters ranging from Snow White and Cinderella to the Big Bad Wolf, who are kicked out of their world and now live in New York City. The series won 14 Eisner awards for its storytelling and art.

In 2004, the studio tried to develop a movie with the Jim Henson Company but didn't get to the writing stage. In 2008, the comic was to be turned into a TV series on ABC and be directed by David Semel ("American Horror Story"). That too didnít happen, but ABC went on to air "Once Upon a Time," also about fairy-tale characters in the real world.

DC's down to fourth tier material already.

Great. More contemporary fairy tale remakes. Hey, DC, three words: Swamp f*cking Thing!

And make it R-rated.

14 Eisner awards?! That's great...."for Hollywood to poop on." The should really take their time with this because if its a hit, it would become a trilogy with an amalgam of different stories...like a Miller's Sin City by Robert Rodriguez.

Actually, I do remember a Jim Henson Company doing a short-lived show called The Storyteller that involved an old man opening up a book and Henson's puppeteers recreating fables or stories from around the world. As I recall, it was pretty classy sh*t for being puppets.

Sounds like a pretty horrible idea, I would rather see a "Fable" movie based on the video game if you wanna talk about f*cken fables. Please no more posts about this kinda gay sh*t. Oh nvm, its WP's, gay it up all you want, Alex. The Michael Keaton thread was just fabulous.

To be fair, Fables was the reason that we are surrounded by fairy tale knockoffs these days. DC's Vertigo imprint is the home of such great titles as 'Sandman,' 'Preacher,' and 'Transmetropolitan,' and has guided comics for more than twenty years- including the creation and later acquisition of DC powerhouse Image Comics.

^^DC doesn't own Image Comics, "Sage". They bought Jim Lee's Wildstorm back in 98-99, but not Image Comics. Pretty sure of that fact, but I checked Wikipedia anyway.

Thanks, Mink. I was going from memory on that one, but missed that important fact. The infusion of Wildstorm characters into the New 52 threw me off. Serves me right for making assumptions.
